Bowling Etiquette

Bowling is a great excuse to get together with your friends and have a wonderful time. To make sure everyone has a great time, it's important that you follow a few simple rules of etiquette.

  • Wait Your Turn: It can be distracting when two people in adjacent lanes try to bowl at the same time. Out of respect for your neighbors, wait until the bowlers on either side of you have gone before taking your turn.
  • Use Your Own Ball: Some bowlers resent it when others use their ball. To avoid an unnecessary spat, stick to your own ball. If you wish to use another bowler's ball, be sure to ask permission.
  • Be Respectful: Though you might go to the bowling alley to enjoy time with your friends or family, keep in mind that there are other bowlers around you. Try to keep the volume to a reasonable level and respect the lanes.

Quick Bowling Tips

Bowling is fun no matter what your skill level is. If you'd like to improve your bowling skills and impress your friends, consider the following tips.

  • Choose the Right Ball: One rule of thumb is to choose a bowling ball that weighs about 10% of your body weight. It's also important to make sure your fingers fit comfortably into the holes.
  • Look at the Arrows: Instead of looking at the pins when you bowl, consider looking at the arrows on the lane. You'll find that this is a great way to improve your accuracy.
  • Follow Through After Release: Aiming a bowling ball can be very difficult. To ensure that the bowling ball goes where you want it to, remember to follow through after you release the ball. Your fingers should be pointing at the pins.
